The past wishes to haunt me
Wants me to fear and reflect,
It wants me to stop moving on
The past does not wish me the best.
I refuse to go down that road
I lived this life and now I am old,
I see the wisdom of leaving the past behind,
It does not define me
And although it tries to remind me,
Of missed opportunities,
There was a reason I believe
That they passed me by.
I won’t let the past hold me back
I won’t have no part of that,
Learnt the lesson and I grew,
It helped my being to become renewed
But there is nothing to gain from dwelling in the past,
Life moves on too fast.
Live it ,
Share and shine your light so bright,
Move forward into what is new,
Because all that’s past is behind you,
And that can’t be changed.
